Pilhes est d'accord avec moi des conditions mises à sa libération, savoir le renoncement à l'action politique, sous quelque forme et pour quelque parti que ce soit.

Duchene ought to appear in the next amnesty, but Proudhon wishes to "prevent an unfortunate oversight": "[ ] et j'ose dire honteux. Duchêne a donné pendant et depuis sa gérance, des preuves d'un talent littéraire tout à fait original [ ]". He is "guarantor and surety" of his friends, "assured as I am by the nature of their ideas and their true feelings" (transl.). - Despite the intervention of Proudhon, Victor Pilhes was not released until August 1854. - Strong damage to edges.

         American Notes for General Circulation [Two Volumes]

      Chapman and Hall. Hardcover. London, 1852. 8vo, green cloth, 308 + 306 pp. First edition, first issue, in a possibly later green cloth with morocco spine labels. With the bookseller ticket of Mitchell Booksellers of Old Bond St., suggesting possibly a bookseller binding. With yellow endpapers, as called for. An exceptionally preserved set in fine condition with minimal shelfwear. Edges of pages speckled. Points checked per Walter Smith's Charles Dickens in the Original Cloth. " Hardly less joyous were Dickens's reunions with his friends Forster, Macready, Maclise, Stanfield, and others but he soon had to buckle down to the writing of his promised American travel book. The furore over international copyright continued, fed by a circular letter Dickens wrote on the topic (on 7 July) which got into American newspapers alongside a forged letter in which he was maliciously represented as branding America a country of gross manners and squalid money-making. There was copious and vehement editorializing about this seemingly clear evidence of Dickens's snobbishness and ingratitude. Against this background he wrote his promised travel book for Chapman and Hall, American Notes, for General Circulation (2 vols.), which appeared on 19 October. In it Dickens praised many of America's public institutions but condemned the national worship of 'smartness' (that is, sharp practice), and attacked particularly the hypocrisy and venality of the American press. He also commented unfavourably on many aspects of American social life, notably the widespread habit of spitting in public, and, predictably, denounced slavery at some length. American Notes sold well but attracted little favourable comment in Britain (Macaulay deemed it 'at once frivolous and dull'; Collins, Critical Heritage, 124) and, unsurprisingly, it met with a very hostile reception in the American press." - Oxford DNB.

         Documentos relativos al proyecto de un ferro-carril entre Santiago i Valparaiso.

      Santiago de Chile, Imprenta de Julio Belin i Ca., February 1852. - Large 8°, disbound. Woodcut vignette of a railway car on title page. Light browning. In good to very good condition. Early manuscript foliation in ink. (1 l.), ii, 103 pp., many tables. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this outline for a railroad connecting Santiago and Valparaiso, Chile's most important seaport. The bulk of the document is a detailed report from Allan Campbell, who had worked on the line between Copiapó and the port of Caldera, the second railroad in South America (preceded only by the Demarara line in British Guiana). Campbell includes information on the route, required work, expenses, and projected traffic.According to the introduction, which is signed by Antonio Varas (one of President Montt's most trusted subordinates), the director of the project was to be William Wheelwright. Wheelwright had tried to get a contract to build the Santiago-Valparaiso line in 1842, but was unable to raise the money when the contract was granted seven years later. He turned instead to steamships, operating the Pacific Steam Navigation Company under a ten-year monopoly starting in 1840. After the monopoly ended, Wheelwright went on to build the fifty-mile Copiapó-Caldera line. When it went into operation in 1851, it was one of South America's few railroads of substantial length.The Santiago-Valparaiso railroad, begun as a joint government and private venture, encountered many delays and difficulties. Eventually the government bought out the private stockholders and entrusted the completion to Henry Meiggs, another American entrepreneur. The final section was completed in 1863.*** Briseño I, 116: calls for only 103 pp. On the Santiago-Valparaiso railroad, see Simon Collier, "Chile from Independence to the War of the Pacific," Cambridge History of Latin America III, 601.

Wheat praises the map as "An arresting production bringing out many new details of the region directly west of New Mexico." Simpson was the first explorer to visit and describe Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Pueblo Bonita, Inscription Rock, and other sites in northern Arizona. As William Goetzmann notes, the work is "a major Southwestern archaeological endeavor" and "no serious student can afford to neglect Simpson's report even in the present day." The plates, handsomely illustrating Navajo costumes, artifacts and sites, make this an important American color plate book. Deak cites the well known view of Santa Fe by Richard Kern. Also included is a comparative vocabulary of the Pueblo language of the "wild tribes" of the borders of New Mexico.Bennett, p.98; Deak, Picturing America 590; Field 1413; Graff 3789; Howes S498, "aa."; Wagner-Camp 218; Palau 31488; Pilling, Proof-sheets 3608; Wheat Transmississippi 641; Reese, Stamped With A National Character 29.

Peters remarks: "Cooper has left us a pungent, graphic record of the long trip to and from the gold fields, of the young cities he found mushrooming there, of booming San Francisco and Sacramento, of the lovely vestiges of the mission-founding padres in early California, and of the actual life of the forty-niners, with its flavor of roughing it, humor, hope, and all the luring magic of the yellow streak."A lovely copy in its original publisher's gilt binding.Howes l300, "aa"; Cowan, p.390; Graff 2469; Flake 4880; Kurutz 395a; Hill, p.476; Peters, America on Stone, pp.130-31, 147; Peters, California on Stone, pp. 97,103-5; Sabin 40723; Wheat Gold Rush 125.

      E. Creed. No Date but c.1852, Folkestone. - Large 10 x 13 inches, hand coloured lithographic view. A very good example. Framed and glazed in acid free mount and backing. This rare, separately published view proudly shows the improvements to Folkestone since the coming of the Railway. It is certainly one of the rarest views of the town. Viewed from the sea the artist looks across the now thriving harbour with it's new station buildings and Harbour House and the luxurious Pavilion Hotel. The new Customs House on the South Quay is not extant, this was erected in 1854. The fine detail shows many individual buildings in Marine Parade area including the town's first Gas works on the land below the Road of Remembrance. Above is the Parish Church and the Bayle, with the beginning of the erection of villas on the lower Leas. The importance of the railway is shown by a train crossing the recently completed viaduct signalling a new fashionable confidence and prosperity for the town and Harbour. KENT FOLKESTONE KENT

         Handgeschreven brief van Koning Willem III der Nederlanden (1817-1890) aan zijn hofarchitect Henri Camp.

      25,4 x 19,3 cm. Gevouwen blad met blindstempel 'London Superfine' (dun schrijfpapier van hoge kwaliteit). Alle vier pagina's beschreven. Gericht aan 'Mon cher architecte et exélève!', gesigneerd 'Votre affectionné Guillaume.' en gedateerd 'La Haye 28 Mars 1852'. 76 regels tekst. Tweemaal gevouwen.l Franstalige brief over landbouw en waterhuishouding aan koning Willems hofarchitect, de in het Belgische Mons geboren Henri François Guillaume Nicolas Camp (dank aan Dik van der Meulen voor deze informatie!). Willem was sterk geïnteresseerd in praktische wetenschappen, verbetering van landbouwtechnieken en dergelijke. In deze uitvoerige brief noemt hij twee vooruitstrevende landeigenaren, Frederik baron van Brakell van den Eng (1788-1865) en de idealistische Iman G.J. van den Bosch (1799-1880) uit Wilhelminadorp. Hij stelt Camp voor om samen met Van Brakell en Van den Bosch op paleis het Loo te komen logeren en de mogelijkheden te bespreken om er een landbouwbedrijf te stichten. Koning Willem III was natuurlijk zelf ook een grootgrondbezitter. Camp ontwierp verschillende belangrijke gebouwen voor de koning, onder andere Bronbeek en het Aardhuis. Een zeer uitvoerige, vriendschappelijke brief, in curieus en niet gemakkelijk leesbaar handschrift geschreven.

"One of the most accurate and complete of all narratives of exploration of the country of the Zuni and Pueblo Indians" (Field). Wheat praises the map as "An arresting production bringing out many new details of the region directly west of New Mexico." Simpson was the first explorer to visit and describe Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Pueblo Bonita, Inscription Rock, and other sites in northern Arizona. As William Goetzmann notes, the work is "a major Southwestern archaeological endeavor" and "no serious student can afford to neglect Simpson's report even in the present day." The plates, handsomely illustrating Navajo costumes, artifacts and sites, make this an important American color plate book. Deak cites the well known view of Santa Fe by Richard Kern. Also included is a comparative vocabulary of the Pueblo language of the "wild tribes" of the borders of New Mexico.

         Les Sept péchés capitaux. La Gourmandise.

      Bruxelles, Méline, Cans et Cie 1852 - in-16, [4]-236 pp., bradel demi-chagrin vert, fiilets dorés au dos, couverture verte imprimée conservée (rel. moderne). Qques petites rousseurs. Bon exemplaire. Ce discret opuscule forme une vraie rareté. En effet, avec le volume consacré à l'Avarice, tout aussi peu commun, il complète la grande série originale des Péchés capitaux d'Eugène Sue, qui comprend donc, en tout, six parties en 18 volumes, ainsi répartis : I. L'Orgueil (six volumes parus en 1848) ; II. L'Envie (4 volumes parus aussi en 1848) ; III. La Colère (deux volumes). - IV. La Luxure et la paresse (quatre volumes de 1849). - V. L'Avarice (un volume, paru en 1851 aussi chez Méline). - VI. La Gourmandise (notre texte, 1852, chez Méline). Comme l'explique Vicaire, si les deux derniers titres sont annoncés dans la Bibliographie de la France, il n'a jamais pu en trouver d'exemplaires. Effectivement, Sue ayant dû s'exiler en 1851 en Savoie pour son opposition au coup d'Etat, ses deux derniers titres ne parurent qu'en Belgique. Ils sont donc très difficile à trouver. Les Sept péchés capitaux sont considérés comme faisant partie des "romans sociaux" de la plume socialiste et feuilletoniste de Sue. Ce n'est qu'en 1880 que Jules Rouff rééditera toute la série en un seul volume. Vicaire VII, 692-694.
